Dive headfirst into the worlds of physics, biology, and chemistry at one of Stockholm’s science museums.

Skansen, The National Museum of Science and Technology, and The Swedish Museum of Natural History are three of Stockholm's most popular museums. Not only are they kid-friendly day-trip destinations for families but they also are great places to fill in some blanks about physics, chemistry, and biology.

Stockholm has several attractions great for anyone who likes to combine a museum visit with amassing knowledge, be it about the laws of thermodynamics or economic theory. Sometimes in fun and playful combinations, like at Tom Tits Experiment – an indoor playground and experimental workshop – or Accelerator; an art gallery located at Stockholm University where modern art meets science in unique collaborations.
